Sin and Repentance

Job 42:6   (KJV)   Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.

When we realize we made a mistake, we humbly admit it and we correct our mistakes.

It’s our joy to walk after God. Knowing our mistakes is having opportunity for transformation—an opportunity to change towards our predestination—Christlikeness. If our perspective and principles are wrong, we lay them down in surrender at the feet Job 42.6 - Sin and Repentanceof the Omniscient. We pray for those who won’t budge. There are those who won’t seek truth. They have opinions and courses of actions formed from dangerously erroneous sources. They don’t want to engage in peaceful dialogue and unbiased research. They make conclusions without evidences. They just parrot the words they hear as long as it promotes their position.

Being principled isn’t enough; we are principled in what’s good, right, and godly. We seek His Kingdom and His righteousness. We pray for His Kingdom to come and His will to be done here on earth as it is in heaven. When our beliefs and lifestyles are wrong and/or sinful, we waste no time and make a U-turn. We don’t relegate our response to just plain admission of mistake in our thoughts. We take action.

Dear heavenly Father, it’s humbling to admit we’re mistaken, especially if we’ve held on to some specific erroneous positions for so long—positions that have affected our decisions and actions, affected our determination as to who are our friends and who are our foes. Please increasingly reveal to us essential truths, even the errors of our ways. We will gladly recalibrate our steps that we may always be faithful. Above all others, You’re the One we want to follow—in Jesus’ Name, amen.
